Cultivating a weekly gratitude practice can do wonders for your health and wellbeing. Anyone can practice gratitude. It only takes a few minutes and doesn’t cost any money. Keeping a gratitude journal is a wonderful way to say ‘thank you’ for all the good in your life. Each week I add to my monthly Gratitude Jar, in my Bullet Journal, with the things I’m grateful for. It’s a fun, easy, way to make gratitude a habit. Having an ‘attitude of gratitude’ has seriously changed my life. Today I’m sharing my tips for practising gratitude, including a free printable version of my Bullet journal gratitude jar.
Drawing, doodling and sketching is a wonderful way to customise the pages of your Bullet journal. Whether you’re an experienced illustrator or just getting started, monthly drawing prompts are a great source of inspiration and encouragement. Create your own list of monthly drawing prompts, or use my list below. Twelve topics are included on my list, enough for a whole year of doodling and drawing!

Performing a daily brain dump is a great way to empty the mind of thoughts, worries and to-dos. When we’re busy our minds become cluttered which leads to stress and overwhelm. We are unable to think clearly or work productively. Introducing a simple ‘brain dump’ exercise into your morning or evening ritual can really help. All that is required is a notebook, or sheet of paper, and a pen. It’s an exercise that works really well with Bullet Journaling. To help you get started I have added printable versions of the layouts that I use each day in my Bullet Journal to my Planner Lovers Resource Library.
